Sorry about being late. Time to start!Defence: 50Influence: 57Lands: 24Law: 18Population: 18Wealth: 25On your lands in The Vale you have some mountains, a stretch of the coast, some small woods, a hamlet around a stream. Your forces consist of elite personal guard, veteran infantry and guerrillas and a trained garrison. You have a port and mine of precious gems.That was all that got done yesterday because I started late and passed out. I forgot to ask to have it archived solid someone has the info from that three let me know and I'll change anything as I tried to remember it correctly.
Need to work on the heir and former Lord give them names and stats. If anyone is interested I could run a quest about them but be warned I suck so it will probably take a while to do anything.
>>41031036>Defence: 50So do the mountain clans even bother to fuck with us anymore?>Law 18Oh wait, yes they do.
My bad the resources areDefence: 50Influence: 57Lands: 26Law: 18Population: 18Power: 24Wealth: 25House words are "Not One Step Back"
I'd play a quest. But what do we have to do to get the heir?Also, a map for deciding where our land is.
>>41031594West side of the bay between Redfort and Gulltown sound good?
>>41031594I'd say in between Iron Oaks and Old Anchor. To work in the Heir we need his age first. Likely going to be a young adult since he went to fight in the rebellion of King Robert. Though that is up to you guys.
>>41031661Is that still in the Mountains of the Moon?
>>41031036I think those troops are wrong. Should be trained archers instead of veteran guerillas
This actually looks interesting, but I don't know what system this, is. If someone could tell me the name, it wold be appreciated.
>>41031720You are correct sir. I don't know where I got that idea from.
>>41031905It's the a song of ice and fire rpg from George martins series of books.
>>41031664>young adult>Robert's RebellionWho's king right now?
>>41031953Robert. It'd only be a few months after he rebelled because of Lyanna Stark's kidnapping and became King. If I remember correctly it's called Robert's Rebellion.
>>41031996Alright, so let's make him a stereotypical fit, young man. A competent archer, perhaps?
Since no one has really responded to an age for the Heir Pallbrim need a consensus now about him being a young adult or just plain adult. Young adults are between 14 and 18 years old and adults are between 19 and 30 years old. Don't worry about actually deciding everything. I'll come up with a set that comes about after some consensus about what he does.
>>41032158Adult I say, if his father is so old
As it seems not many are around we are going with an adult. Roll me a 2d6 for status real quick. Any preference on what he's good with like the one anon suggested with a bow? Would be fight with a short or long sword? Did he fall for enemy feints and counters or did he out maneuver the enemy? Is he socially capable or a walking wall?
Rolled 3, 5 = 8 (2d6)>>41032463I'd like to build him around being a horse warrior with bow and lance rather than a sword.
>>41032603Stating out with 4 for status. That will change later though.
>>41032463I'd like to see him using a longaxe. As for social, I aimgine he's more of a fighter than a social butterfly
>>41032603>horse-riding archerFilthy Dothraki horse-fucker detected.
>>41032734Whatever works. Although,since we live in a mountainous area, I am willing to settle for just a foot archer.
>>41032818Bow for ranged, longaxe for melee then?
While your discussing roll me 2d6 for goals, motivations, virtues and vices each please.
Rolled 3, 6 = 9 (2d6)>>41032891>>41032841I suppose
>>41032841Sure. Always has at least 2 daggers as well, just in case
So apparently Revenge is a goal for the Heir whose placeholder name is Jon until voted for. Need three more rolls.
>>41033064Grimbold for name
Rolled 2, 5, 3, 6, 1, 1 = 18 (6d6)>>41033064>>41033083Let's try something not from Lord of the Rings. How about Ramien?
>>41033182Ramien doesn't sound Westerosi, whereas Grimbold at least does. What about Theodan? It's a Westerosi name
So Hatred as a motivation. Magnanimous as a virtue. Arrogant as a vice. Sounds like a regular noble don't he? So going with long axe and bows for weapons? Not quite that charming. How did he do in the rebellions? Did he lose most troops in a few engagements by playing into the enemies hands or did he make them dance to his tune?
>>41033307What about neither? He just fought under the command of Arryn and won through sheer grit. A few minor victories here and there through superior planning would be alright, but the majority were mainly him holding the line for Arryn's forces
>>41033401It was more of an option to get people talking and discussing. All of it will help determine his attributes. So if they outmaneuvered him he'd be a bit dull and not know how to command his troops whereas if he did that to them he'd be quite bright and have excellent command of his troops.
>>41033307Heh, I'm liking this character already. I'd prefer a flail instead as Bludgeons have the only one handed Powerful weapon, meaning we can switch to using a shield and still do lots of damage.As for names, don't really care about the suggested choices so long as we change Ramien's spelling to Raemion, since it sounds Valyrian to me.
>>41033463I'm also fine with him being more of a commander of men rather than a tactical genius.
>>41033811>since it sounds Valyrian to me.We're of an old Andal house.
>>41033928We can still have a Valyrian name, in honor of some maternal ancestor or friend of the family.
>>41033845I'd be comfortable barely focusing on leadership with this guy. I'm actually cool with just being a high-level hybrid archer.
All right time for a proper vote for name. Just the number please1 for Grimbold2 for Raemon3 for Theodan
Calling it for Raemon Pallbrim. Working in his skills and shit so may not be around for a while. Discuss ideas for a hiuse crest, did Raemon find a wife before leaving, on the road or after?
>>41034413>>41034413Long axe anon from earlier. I'm also fine with a flail, a halberd, pole axe or a boar spear. I just want a big two handed weapon to fuck people up with that isn't a sword
>>41034906>WifeMight as well marry us off to a good rich Reach or Westerland woman so we can reap the benefits from the connection.>CrestSomething combining the sea and the mountains. Perhaps a purple mountain over a white wave, on a field of blue. Very Vale-y.
>>41034906>>41034906After probably, since our star started rising after the war.As for crest, needs to be tied to our words. Maybe a grey shield with twin axes crossed behind on a red field?
>>41035004What about a Royce, for that homefield political alliance? If we go Westerlands, a Crakehall, Marbrand, or Lefford would be good. If we go Reach, a Bulwer or Oakheart bride would be good
>>41035074Why not a Crane? Lot of good fighters in house Crane.
>>41035113Just suggesting names. I'm personally partial to marrying in the Vale, as that makes our ally more relevant if we need help. I'd suggest somebody else besides the Royce's, but I'm drawing a blank on relevant powerful Vale families.
>>41035346From what I remember, Belmore and Waynwood seem at least pretty powerful. Corbray is poor but boasts a great history and valyrian steel sword. I would assume Grafton is at least wealth. I don't feel like we get enough information about the vale houses.
>>41035346If so, then we should wait for our official spot on the map, so we can marry a nearby house.
>>41035470Gonna second this anon. I'll laugh though if we end up on the Fingers next to Baelish
>>41035531I'd still rather marry a rich girl.
>>41035531>>41035559Lets go for rich and nearby.
>>41035559Good dowry but a House that can't help us when we need it isn't useful. I'd rather settle for a decent dowry but solid political connections and a military ally.
>>41035646>>41035646Of course, this is fine too.
All right here's what I'm thinking of for safe for Raemon.Fighting 4 Marksmenship 3 Endurance 4 Agility 3 Athletics 4 Awareness 3 Cunning 3 Animal Handling 3 Healing 3 Warfare 3 Will 3The reason for high fighting stats are simple. He fought a shit ton. Average is 2 in any stat.
>>41036311Are we speccing into axes or bludgeons for fighting? We also need some points in powerful.
>>41036311Are we an adult, or young adult? Hoping for adult and bludgeons, by the way.
>>41036424>>41036385Yes adult. I was waiting on agreement of what I posted. Specialties are coming next. They are going to be a group vote instead of me picking.
>>41036311Can we move Healing 3 to Language 3 do we can actually read please?
>>41036468Can we lower one stat to 1 so that we can get another 50 XP?
>>41036486You could. I just put healing in there on a whim. If another anon votes consider it switched.
>>41036551We really need to be able to read.
>>41036551It just seems strange that an heir would be unable to read, but okay
>>41036520Depends on if someone votes for it. Throw an idea out with arguments for it and see if anons go for it.
I also agree with swapping healing for language
>>41036582voting to be able to read
>>41036575>>41036576Right my fault. Didn't think you needed a higher language to read.
>>41036582I suggest we reduce Healing to 1, as that's primarily the job of a maester or a dedicated medic. This way we can up our Persuasion and Survival to 3, one skill which will help a bit with social, and one which I think is paramount in the Vale especially with all the Wildlings about. The remaining points I suggest we put into Marksmanship to get it to 4, so we can really say we're a hybrid archer/fighter.
>>41036690I'm also amenable to putting the ten points I suggested for Survival into something else, like Stealth or another language.
>>41036690Putting Marksmenship to 4 would take 40 points not 10 as we are still building him.
>>41036772You mean 30 right? Because you have Marksmanhip at 3 already.
>>41036772I also never said anything about only using 10 for Marlsmanship. I mentioned using ten for Survival and Persuasion.
>>41036865Yes. I was stating that to jump two levels in an attribute would require 40 Xp. Since ten is already spent another thirty would make it rank 4.
>>41036921I am a newfag with this. I didnt think of adding the to already spent to make the 40 until the other anon said something.
>>41036690So is this happening? And are the 10 points going into Survival going instead to a new language?
>>41037276As long as we can speak, read and write I think survival would be better than a new language.
>>41037307I would agree with this.
Okay new abilities are Fighting 4 Marksmenship 4 Endurance 4 Agility 4Survival 3 Language 3 awareness 3 Warfare 3Persuasion 3 Will 3 Cunning 3 Animal Handling 3
>>41037607I'd say that looks pretty good.
>>41037607Fine with this, tough I'd also list Healing at 1 to make sure we don't forget
Thread is dead? Thread is dead
>>41038565I hope not. Just got back from fixing my sisters wifi because apparently she can't into it.
Thread is confirmed for NOT DEAD
>>41040065Did we already do a Status roll for starting wealth?
>>41040199I want to say yes in the first thread. But I do t really know. But anyways that done we now move onto qualities. We have 4 destiny points but at least one has to go to heir. So leaving that out we have 2 more that we can use for positive benefits. And since we are an adult we need to pick a negative. I'll come back with a list for positives first.
Shit I meant I'd bring a list of specialties. Or people can offer ones of their own. Like how some wanted a long axe or bow specialties. We have 80 points for it and each one costs 10 x the value we want but cannot exceed the base amount. In example bows for Marksmenship cannot go over 4 for the moment.
>>41040285Are we doing specialties first, or afterwards? Some qualities have prerequisites, so I just wanted to check.
>>41040471Yeah I had a damn brainfart there sorry. If I keep this up I'd be surprised if any of you guys stayed around.
>>41035004oh god how do i artlooks kinda bland, but I don't know what to add
So on specialties we have long blade, short blade, axe, bludgeons, shields, pole-arms, brawling, fencing and spears for fighting. 80 points to spend at 10 x the level you want but not exceeding 40. Others will come after this as it seems to be a bit contentious.
>>41040727Is Archery/marksmanship something we'll be able to put points into later or did you just forget to put it in?
>>41040727I know some anons wanted to rock an axe or mace, and I would be cool with that, but at least some in long blade so we have something to fall back on.
>>410407272 in BludgeonsWe can get a Ball and Chain, the only Powerful weapon that can be used with a shield (unless you're Massive), and either a Flail or a Warhammer. Flail does more damage an has no bulk, but the Warhammer has some other nice effects that go with it such as Shattering 2 and Staggering IIRCI personally prefer Flail though.
>>41040819Long Blade benefits suck in comparison to Axe and Mace ones, the weapons themselves are ridiculously expensive, and there are weapons that are just as good or better and yet are cheaper.
>>41040812I was going to do it after this.
>>41040888Continuing on, I proposed Bludgeons because we can have a two handed weapon and a one handed weapon that are both not only Powerful, but also the same weapon type which mean we have more specialty dice to spare.
So spend 20 and get 2 Bludgeoning?If that's so moving to Marksmenship. We have bows, crossbows, siege and thrown. 60 points left.
>>410410792 in MarksmanshipI'm planning on getting 2 in Strength, and then look around and see where we ought to put the other dice
>>41041169>>41041169Shit, meant Bows, not Marksmanship
For Athletics we have Climb, Jump, Run, Strength, Swim and Throw. 40 points left after bows. And it seems it's just us anon. I'm not going to yell at ya for that.
>>41041359I think there's at least one other guy, but that break from earlier probably saw every one else leave. Ah well.2 in Strength. I'll think about what else to do with the remaining dice
>>41041404Yeah I could have sworn I left a post saying that I'd be leaving for about an hour. Apparently 4chan wanted to shut the bed for me and eat it.Gonna wait for a bit longer and see if anyone else has a say.
Have a banner
>>41041636Why thank you kind anon.And as no one else has said anything continuing on. Endurance has Resilience and Stamina. Only 20 points left.
>>41041689None in those.I'm thinking we should put one die in Ride, and the other in Strategy since we are something of a leader.
>>41041730Hey it's your call. If no one else has any objections after a bit more we'll continue into benefits Raemon has qualified for.
>>41041788Have another banner
>>41041730I'm cool with this.
>>41041832Where do you get these? They are awesome.
>>41041854Google RPG heraldry maker. It should be the first entry. I found it originally through the old ASOIAF quests on tg
Well since that's done. We have 4 destiny points but at least one has to go to heir. So leaving that out we have 2 more that we can use for positive benefits. And since we are an adult we need to pick a negative.
Bludgeon Fighter 1, and Heirloom for a Valyrian steel sword or axe?
>>41042040Nah, no heirloom. Armour Mastery for sure though. I'll think a little about what the other option should be.
Considering flaws, do we know anything about our heirs personality? Honor-bound would be good but it would be typical to be honorable. Marked as well would be interesting, maybe even Haughty.
>>41042078I put in Heirloom as Pallbrim has been around for damn near the beginning and most houses who have done that have one. At least I think. But not concerned about it. Just kill a house who has one and take it right? Hey where'd everyone go?
>>41042153Nemesis might be an option as he has a hatred for someone from the rebellion maybe a house that stayed loyal and wounded him before the end? But I'll try and stay out of it.
>>41042154>>41042153I'd take both Haughty and Honour-bound, as we're Arrogant yet Magnanimous.Also looking through benefits right now. Still not interested in heirloom, as it's not really that great
>>41042177Yeah, if he's got any kind of backstory, I think it would be cool to include something like that.
Yeah, so I'm thinking Armour Mastery, Fast, Expertise (Strategy), and/or Shield Mastery. What do you guys think?
>>41042320I'd also go for Double Shot, but we don't have the stats for that yet.
Posting alternate crest
Okay so anyone still around beside the crest anon(who I really like for doing that)? I'd probably should have made a short list huh?
I am still here, will be leaving for a few to go for my daily run but I will be back and keeping an eye on this.
>>41042320I'm gonna go for Expertise (Command) and Fast, just so we can move quickly and be decent at being a commander
>>41042601I think you have 2 crest anons right now. I made the first two, but not the last one.
>>41042649On second thought, don't wanna spread put too much. Make that Armour Mastery and Fast
>>410426702nd crest anon here, will have to sign out soon as it's getting late (4:14 am) for me.
Okay we have armour mastery and fast. or Armour Mastery and bludgeon fighter 1. Gonna hold a vote for each link to this post please.
>>41042744Quarter after 9 for me here. Might e best to let this thread die and make another thread another day for benefits and drawbacks I imagine
>>41042744Sorry for taking so long on this. It's my first time with the rpg and doing anything of the sort on 4chan. I usually just post in quests.
>>41042796I say armor mastery and bludgeon fighter, and thank you ASOIAFNewfag for doing this.
Could someone archive this for me before it dies? I can't into doing that on my phone and if everyone is going to bed we will continue tomorrow at around 1 EST. again apologies for my shittiness at this whole thing.
>>41042823It's alright, it's just that this has been running all day for me and people mostly left during tha break you took earlier. Making another thread tomorrow might be for the best for participation
>>41042881That wasn't planned being the only one with any knowledge of computers and computer related things makes it so if they have any problems, even if it's shit I already helped them with and explained, my family keeps pestering me to help them out even if u don't know what to do.
How does one archive a thread? I'll try todo it, but I'm on my phone so can't make prpmises
>>41042823Don't worry about it! I actually just got through reading everything up until now when I posted the crest.
Well since we are picking up tomorrow. Anything that I can improve upon so far? I know that you haven't seen much of writing from me but has it been at least a little fun?
>>41042951Never mind, looks like I need to get access to a PC to do it...which I won't have for the next day or so
>>41043143These are always fun, provided we get a quest out of it.>totally not hintingSeriously though, it's been entertaining. Would be better though if we moved a bit faster
>>41043176Hey that was the goal of this! I think. Or it might have been just to have fun. Also to help me with my writing. Maybe all three.pacing does seem slow but I'd rather have at least one or two anons around to talk about things then go ahead with something and piss everyone off.
Thanks to the anon who archived but damn long as title though.
